Tried them all.

I'm looking for a small pulley aka sheave for my Varney locomotives. Three tier pulley that looks like the one on the end of the drive shaft.

Is there a small parts outlet that might have something similar that I don't know about?

Bob, those “step pullys” are about as rare as 010 pistons!! Don’t know what groups you might belong to on Vintage HO, I found a few on Facebook, only one had any mention of Varney. The attached thread mentions a couple of times the varney step pully as being next to impossible to find......Maybe you know someone who could 3dprint one for ya..hint, hint.

Yeah, I do get around.  Smile

We had a discussion over on the model train forum regarding flywheels.  Neat things but they don't work in my Varneys so I'm converting them back to belt drive pulleys.  

3D printing wouldn't work.  Media needs to be aluminum/brass or equivalent.  If I had a lathe I could turn one out in  a hurry.  

Got the same plea over on the train forum, maybe they will come up with something.

Edit add:

Yes, Michael came up with this:

Looks like I will have to settle for a single stage pulley though. No problem, I will just select the intermediate size.
